How to watch ‘Diary of a Future President’

Sure, running for the highest office in the land is hard, but it’s nothing compared to acing algebra, making the volleyball team, or finding a date to the dance. Elena Cañero-Reed, like many young Latino-American teens, has big dreams–but she has to survive middle school first.

Diary of a Future President is just that. President Romero recounts passages in her diary she began when she first had the inking to one day lead the nation at the tender age of 12. The series will bounce from present to future and back, showing Elena’s many dealings with adversity and helping her to become the leader that she eventually dreamed she would become.
